Love Stories

True Love Is A Big Deal

Jaja Lifestyle Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

It’s not every day we see a relationship that lasts 10 years, so we’re truly happy for Janel and Paulo, who not only found a lover in each other, but a best friend whom they will keep by their side forever. And with that, we bring you this beautiful set of photos taken by Jaja Lifestyle Photography.

From the bride: “The whole wedding was unforgettable but some of the most special moments were when we recited our personal vows, and when I walked down the aisle and saw our families, friends and my grandparents, and Pau waiting for me at the altar. It has always been my dream to walk down the aisle in a pretty white gown. When my grandfather danced with me during the reception, I cried. I felt at that very moment that no matter what happens, I would always be his little girl.

“We wanted a theme that was not too over the top and décor heavy, so we chose polka dots and stripes since it is simple, yet very cute and easy to match. As it was summer, salmon pink, seafoam green and mint seemed suitable. Pau and I never thought of having our reception indoors. We wanted to be different from the weddings we’ve attended. We love the idea of backyard receptions because they seem very simple, comfortable and fun.

“Together with my cousin and friends, we made a newspaper to share our story as a couple with our guests. We wanted to share with them our 10 years of being together. We had different games that involved all of our guests throughout the night, for example trivia questions for guests to get to know us better, and Jenga as an alternative to tossing the bridal bouquet.

“Prepare a lookbook of how you envision your wedding and reception to be. It helps you put everything together and match your ideas.”

Putting aside all the pretty things, what we truly want to celebrate is this couple. You have to listen to the vows they make to each other in the video compiled by IGS Cinema to understand the love that they have for each other. It suddenly dawned upon us that a pretty wedding is but an empty shell if true love is not part of the whole thing.

Definitely not your regular bridal portraits, these cost an estimated USD20,000, and much planning had to be done in advance to ensure that they achieved the results they wanted. Needless to say, the journey there wasn’t easy, and neither were the weather conditions.

This pursuit of the Aurora Borealis, commonly known as The Northern Lights, was made possible by ChuianFeng of Avior Pictures and a team adventurous enough to move out of their comfort zone, not to mention a couple crazy enough to attempt it.

About 280 guests gathered for the wedding of these two photographers, Mildred and Marlon. Decorated with beautiful vintage paraphernalia, the reception was everything the couple wanted – the perks of working in the wedding industry and having friends who understood exactly what they wanted for their wedding.

Mildred: “We wanted to have a very laidback wedding; something that’s not too formal and constricted. A bohemian wedding with a touch of vintage was outright perfect for our personalities. It’s a good thing working in the wedding industry has its perks. We were able to work not only with colleagues but people from the industry whom we already consider friends. Because of their genius, our ideas for our wedding were executed according to our vision. DIY ideas – reception styling, boutonnieres and floral head wreaths – were pulled off with the help of the creative minds of Cuckoo Cloud Concepts.

“The bridal gown was designed by Jerrick Macasocol. But I gave him pointers as to what I would like in my wedding gown. Like, I wanted a flowy bohemian gown made of off-white lace with an open back. It is actually a two-piece dress. The lower gown is actually a skirt that can be removed, with a short knee-length lace dress inside. I asked him to design it that way so I can still use the knee-length dress after the wedding.

“I designed the bridesmaids’ dresses myself, bought the materials, and had them made by a trusted local seamstress here in Cebu. I wanted the gowns to be flowy and easy to move in to maintain the bohemian vibe. I wanted different designs for each of them so they can still use the gowns after the wedding, without having to worry that someone else has the same dress. I went for soft, romantic neutral colours like peach, melon, beige, and cream.”

Countryside Tranquility

Photography by thegaleria. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Film photography has been making a comeback of late, and if you are a fan you will like this set of bridal portraits that was taken in Nagano, Japan. This is thegaleria’s signature style but it is still the photographer, Brian, who has done an impressive job on his maiden trip to Nagano. Most of what you see is original, untouched-up photos, which makes them even more awesome. We are awed.

Whimsical Celebration

To be honest, when we first stumbled upon this set of photos, we didn’t realise that it was a wedding in Singapore. The flowers and colours used were so rare. The photography style of Ivan Tan definitely did its magic too – the images and emotions look so effortless yet real.

It’s not often we get to see an Asian bridal couple actually relax and enjoy their wedding. We like it when the couple is involved in the décor because it seems as if their wedding is their first special project together.

From the round green and purple paper lanterns, origami cranes and crepe paper flowers, to the pretty centerpieces, colourful buntings and adorable furry green animals, every element had been carefully pieced together by the couple and their friends.

Jia Yin: “It’s hard to pin down a favourite moment – the impromptu sing-along session with the band, secretly-organised party games we weren’t told about, the heartfelt speeches from the best man Hianyi and maid of honour Jess, the endless photobooth madness… At the end of the day, we were just overjoyed that our guests enjoyed themselves.”

Huan Min: “One of my groomsmen, Dalun, surprised me by turning up at my home in the morning when he was supposed to be studying in the States. The feeling really was indescribable.

“We wanted our wedding to be not about us, but about all who have touched our lives, because without these wonderful people we would not be who we are. With the idea of a house party in mind, we chanced upon Food For Thought at Singapore Botanic Gardens and fell in love with the expansive space and wholesome home-style dishes.”

Tips from the bride: “Forget about fairytales, a wedding is a celebration of love and friendship; everything else is cosmetic. If you’re pining for the perfect solitaire and the wind in your hair, you’re setting yourself up for stress and disappointment.

“Take your time to bring together a team who shares your vision and tastes. We were deliberate in asking Ivan to be our photographer, not just because he made great photos but because his philosophy towards photography – to capture moments and interactions as they happened; no second takes – resonated with us.”

Spontaneous Moments

Photography by Funky Dali. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Joston and Michelle had a yellow and grey theme for their wedding, and wanted to include those colours in their bridal portraits too. The couple love the outdoors and hikes, so they traveled to the nearest peak and did a little “hike”. We can’t fully express in words how much we love the whole styling and mood of this shoot done by Funky Dali.

Michelle and Joston: “We were convinced about doing a photoshoot with them because we’d viewed their portfolios and really loved their style. The entire experience with Funky Dali felt comfortable and flexible with a lot of freedom for feedback on our ideas.

“The photos turned out very natural and beyond our expectations. We were very impressed with the outcome. It had the rustic style and candid moments of both of us, just the way we wanted it to be. Our family and guests liked it very much too!”

Funky Dali: “The weather wasn’t really on our side during the shoot and we had to work around it. The ideas for some of the pictures that we really liked just came to us on the day, especially the one with the yellow umbrella, because we were trying to counter the bad weather.”

We’re probably biased, but we take pride in our selected list of photographers, passionate people who take the time to know the couples they photograph, and conceptualise something personal for each of them.

We love these pieces because they look almost like art – quiet and still yet full of emotion, both from this couple’s movements and their gaze. We’ve been told diagonal lines add dynamic to photographs, which those pretty legs sure do.

The Whitewashed Towns Of Santorini

When it comes to photoshoots in Santorini, Greece, there is a pre-conception of how the photos will turn out – couples cuddling and looking sweet as they pose overlooking the Aegean Sea under the big blue sky.

Thankfully, this photographer wants more for each couple that comes his way. After looking at the attire they had in mind, he knew Ting and Hin were after a more stylish approach.

In the beginning, the couple had their doubts as to whether Greece was the right backdrop for what they wanted, but the photographer assured them it was, and they are more than pleased with the results.

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

These are the famous Bible verses the bride pondered upon as she walked down that aisle.

Sometimes it is easy to let everything else steal the limelight on your wedding day. But for Renny and Ben, thePhotograph captured their testament of love that took centre stage.

Renny: “It was very exciting when the day drew nearer, and we realised the day we had worked hard preparing for was coming. For various reasons, we changed several key vendors but everything turned out perfectly despite the many obstacles we faced. We’re glad as well that there were no disputes between our families and us.

“We managed to convince our parents to make our wedding day personal and warm, unlike the typical huge weddings in Indonesia. We went with bold and elegant warm tones and a touch of gold; pastel and sweet colours definitely don’t go with our personality.

“Elegant glamour filled the indoor section of the Hyatt OnFive rooftop, while the outdoor section was filled with dancing and singing. We prepared umbrellas as gifts for our guests because it was rainy season and we didn’t want to put up a tent. Our invitations were another unique part of our wedding – laser cut plywood, wrapped in gift-wrapping paper.”

Tips for brides: “Don’t take more than six months to plan the details; you’ll get bored and overwhelmed. Your tastes and preferences might change over time too. Also, pick your vendors carefully. Don’t go with someone you have doubts about. Follow your heart.”

Rock Stars

Rachel and Noel are college sweethearts. He is a hardcore guitarist while she loves to sing. The couple chose Route 196 because this is where Noel and his band perform regularly. The sign outside the bar showed their names and wedding date, which made a great save-the-date piece. The light painting is definitely one of our favourite features in this set; it made the photos look like a rock star’s concert.

Eugene Martinez Photography: “For one of the compositions, I played with the idea of Rachel’s shadow on the wall with Noel in the foreground to combine the two of them. I also added light painting to give a rock star feel. I asked them to stand facing each other for 30 seconds while I painted with lights and an alternative song played in the background.”

Small Town Fair

Photo by Daniel Lei Studio. Styling by Vatel Manila. www.theweeddingnotebook.com

‘Perya’ is a Filipino term referring to the carnival fair that usually happens during town fiestas. It is derived from the Spanish word ‘feria’. There is something magical about shooting in a ‘perya’ with vintage dresses and balloons, something very colourful and romantic about it. Maybe it’s all the childhood romantic stories that we read.

These photos give us the impression that this couple has been there before, and that they are walking through the place with flashbacks of their previous visit playing in their heads.

Vatel Manila: “We didn’t think twice about suggesting to Bonnie and Neptune about a shoot at a local ‘perya’ – they were just the right couple for the concept! It was perfect, too, since their wedding theme was ‘Small Town Fair’!”

Vatel Manila: “We just love the idea of shooting at a local ‘perya’ so when Bonnie and Neptune asked for location ideas, we didn’t think twice about suggesting this – they were just the right couple for this concept!

“It was perfect as well, since their wedding theme was ‘Small Town Fair’! They really scoured the metro for a small traveling carnival and they found one right in the heart of Antipolo City. The couple didn’t bother to shoot at other locations, which goes to show that if you know what you want to shoot, you don’t really need an alternative.”
